Friday Favorites + A Giveaway

Meet At The Barre

Today pretty much rocks my socks off. I just have to get through work this morning and then I can enjoy a glorious 4 day weekend. You have no idea how excited I am for 4 amazing days off of work! Thank you to Buddha for having a birthday and the Korean who celebrate it!

In honor of my sleepy, yet chipper mood this morning, I’m linking up with the always awesome Amanda from Meet @ the Barre and Jenny from The Diary of a Real Housewife to share some of my favorites from the week.

Snuggles with my fur babies

Seriously, I’m the crazy dog mom that spends most of her day snuggled up to or taking pictures of her fur babies. They’re just so damn cute and cuddly.

Things I am Thankful for

Spontaneous Dance Parties in my Living Room

I think this has to double as my favorite cardio workout. I mean, I’d much rather shake my groove thing and drop it like it’s hot than run a mile. Bonus points to you if you recognize the movie this gif is from! It was one of my favorites growing up. πŸ˜€

Leftover Easter Candy

Who doesn’t like leftover holiday candy? Of course, then I have to do double the dance parties to work it all off. Or you know just watch Netflix and snuggle with the pups.

Holiday Candy

Movies in the Garden

It’s that time of year again! The San Antonio Botanical Garden is screening free movies in the garden, so Troy and I will be packing a blanket and a picnic for tonight’s awesome outdoor movie, Breakfast at Tiffany’s.

Emma Stone killing it in this lip synch battle

Emma Stone is pretty much my spirit animal. She’s amazing! And all she does is win.

Now, for an awesome giveaway! Summer is right around the corner and I have teamed up with 7 other amazing bloggers to bring you a giveaway for a $65 gift card. We wanted to do something fun and that everyone would enjoy, so we thought it would be a good idea to come together and giveaway a gift card of your choice.

  • Your dogs are really cute! Also dance parties in the living room are a must! I even mentioned it on the blog this week!

    • Thank you! They are my spoiled fur babies. πŸ™‚ And dance parties should be a requirement in EVERY living room!

  • i love spontaneous dance parties too πŸ˜‰ i totally count it as a cardio workout lol. annnnd the easter candy was gone by monday lol

    • Haha! Yes!! I wish the Easter candy would have hung around a little longer. I could really use some right now.

  • Seriously, Jimmy Fallon’s lip sync battles may be my favorite thing ever.

    • Mine too! Another one of my favorites was his lip sync battle with Joseph Gordon Levitt. πŸ˜€

  • I love watching movies in the park. It’s so much fun.

    As are spontaneous dance parties. I LOVE EM!

    • Perhaps, we should combine the two! A movie in the park with a spontaneous dance party afterwards. Or is that a little too much like Grease? Haha

  • I love when cities do free screenings of movies in the park – such a fun treat!! Enjoy your long weekend!

    • Thanks! And I love watching the movies in that park every year. So much fun.

  • Girls Just Want to have fun is one of my favorites!!! I still watch it to this day πŸ˜‰

    • YES!!! I’m so happy that someone else recognized that movie! I totally re-watched it on Netflix recently. I always wanted to be able to dance like them. Haha

  • I am so jealous of the outdoor movies! Going to a drive-in is actually on my bucket list! I will make it there one day! I think what you are doing is actually even cooler because you can spread out some blankets and hang outside. Awesome! Have a wonderful weekend!

    • Oh, drive in movies are amazing too. I went to a mini-urban drive in a few years ago for the first time and I loved it. I hope you get to go to one soon! Have a great weekend!:D

  • I LOVED Emma Stone. Girl crush alert. And she total picked the right song and that camera choreography (!).

    • I know! She had the whole package for that performance! I love her. πŸ˜€

  • Can you believe I’ve actually never seen Breakfast at Tiffany’s?! But I definitely would if it were playing outdoors in a park- looove outdoor movies! And dance parties are a must!

  • I’m a crazy dog mom too and I wouldn’t have it any other way. And didn’t Emma Stone kill it? So cool.


  • I so love leftover Easter candy. I’m still munching on the chocolate.

  • I love me some early days SJP! Dance parties totally count as cardio I 100 % agree! Oh your babies look so squeezable! Thanks so much for linking up!!

    • Thanks! My babies are definitely big snugglers. πŸ˜€ And thanks for hosting the link up!

  • If I could just snuggle my pup all day that would be epic. That is one of my favorite movies and being able to watch it in the Garden sounds awesome!! Have a great 4 day weekend.

    • Thanks! The movie in the garden was so much fun. And the weather was amazing. πŸ˜€

  • Who cannot know thatΒ΄s Girls Just Wanna Have Fun??? I still love that movie and will watch it every time itΒ΄s on TV.

    • So glad I’m not the only one!! I still love that movie to this day. πŸ˜€

  • I love outdoor movies & also going to drive in movie theaters! That’s awesome that the San Antonio Botanical Gardens is hosting something like that.

    • The movie was so much fun last night. Now, I only wish San Antonio also had a drive in movie.

  • Amanda

    Puppy snuggles are the BEST! Hardest part about getting up in the morning is having to stop!

  • I LOVE the lip sync battle, that was awesome!!!

    • I love all the lip sync battles that Jimmy Fallon does, but this one is definitely my favorite! πŸ˜€

  • Emma Stone can do no wrong – loved seeing her cameo on SNL last night! Hope it’s been a great weekend πŸ™‚

    • She’s amazing in everything! I love her sense of humor. I hope you enjoyed your weekend too!

  • Ohhh love outdoor movie season!
